Quadcopter Overview

Posted on Posted in Electronics, Projects

For my final project for the BCIT Bachelors of in Electronics I am building a Quadcopter. This is a project I have been working on or the past few months and have decided to start documenting it. Below is a simple block diagram of the major components of the Quadcopter:

It consists of:

  • A Quadcopter Controller which will be a custom PCB that I will design
  • 4 Electronic Speed Controllers which are brush-less motor drivers to interface between the Quadcopter Controller and the brush-less motors, which will be purchased
  • 4 Brush-less Motors which will be purchased

The main goal of this project is to get one axis of the quadcopter to work stably under feedback. Ultimately I would like the Quadcopter to hover or fly stably.
